Haul Post!

Whilst, admittedly, I've been spending most of my money on books recently, I've somehow still found money to treat myself. Here's a look at what I've been buying recently...

When my mother last came to visit, she told me I was missing a unicorn cushion. The next day, I spotted this one in a little card shop, and I knew I had to make it mine. In my last haul post, I shared the Carex Unicorn Magic Soap I picked up in Poundland. I went back to Poundland recently to pick up the Unicorn Magic Body Wash too! Also, how adorable are the new Harry Potter coasters?! I have way too many coasters already, more than I could ever hope to use to be honest, but I couldn't resist these.

April-May Book Haul!

I wonder if even one month will go by without me buying any books? Haha, don't be silly! Even with the best intentions, I always seem to end each month with more books than I started with. In fact, it's quite possible I'm buying more books than I'm reading at the moment. Things have definitely got of out hand. Here's the books I've bought recently...

The saga of this book box set. I wanted the Penguin Modern Classics Box Set from the moment it was announced. But upon it's release, Amazon sold out instantly. So I purchased it from a third party seller. Unfortunately, it went missing in transit and never arrived. I was gutted. And to make matters worse, Amazon now had it back in stock...but for £10 more than the original price! I told myself I couldn't have it and would put it on my birthday wish-list instead. A few days later, though, it came to my attention that the price had dropped back down to the original price. I didn't even have to think about it, I clicked Buy It Now! I'm halfway through this collection of modern classics, and although the collection is a real mixed bag, there are some real gems in here! No regrets here, to be honest.

Accessorise Your Phone* || With My Personalised Case

It's no secret that I love my cat. But did you know that I now have four phone cases with photos of my cat on? Crazy cat lady alert! I'm more than a little obsessed with carrying my little furry friend around with me wherever I go, so when I was given the chance to design my own phone case with My Personalised Case, it was obviously going to be covered in pictures of my cat.

Chemist 4 U* || With Chemist 4 U

I am all about making life easier, in any way possible to be honest. So when I heard about Chemist 4 U*, the lazy girl inside me rejoiced. Finally, a way to fill your prescriptions and buy all your drug-store products without even leaving the house!

April Reading Wrap-Up//May TBR

I am sooooo behind with blog posts at the moment. This post should have gone live at the end of April, along with my Life Lately - April Edition, and April Favourites. But instead we're well into May and I'm only just publishing it! Shocking, I know. Anyway, I'm here (finally) with a quick look back at, and mini-review of, the books I read in April, as well as a peek at what's on my TBR pile for May!

I started the month off with one of the most boring, pointless, inane books I've ever read. Alphabet (*), by Kathy Page, has many rave reviews, but I just could not get on-board with this book at all. Things soon picked up though, when I started reading Hangman (*****) by Daniel Cole. A fantastic crime fiction novel that was gripping from start to finish.

May Goals!

So, April was a bit of a write-off for me. Of my five goals (see what they were here), I achieved only two; buying myself flowers once a week, and buying a new plant. I normally recount last month's goals in these posts, before setting new ones, but as last month was such a fail, I'm just going to dive straight into the new goals I'm setting myself for May!

April Favourites!

I know, I know. I'm posting my April Favourites in May. Who even am I? I'm usually much more organised with these posts, and get them out in the last week of each month. But last month I had a lot of collaborations come my way (which was awesome) that took priority. So my April Favourites blog post got pushed back a little. And now, here we are. Enjoy this quick look back at a few of my favourite things from April...

Getting my nails done is always a highlight of my month! I really love this red and silver colour combo, and I can't tell you how glad I was to get a new set of nails after accidentally dying my last nails (mint green) purple whilst dying my hair!
